    Agreed sir and some excellent observations.

    There was one thing not mentioned, perhaps it is in your book… and that is just who has managed this phenomenon. In days of yore, closed shops were set up by the unions of various professions, such as doctors, lawyers, architects etc., but when factory and manual workers decided that they wanted similar “protections”, the government of the day, came down on them like a ton of bricks, and rightly so. Remember the miners strike?

    Now, as you succinctly point out, this pattern is being engendered by government, and frequently not in the interests of the customer, or the practitioner, but clearly as a form of government control.
